netlabel 'RETROSPEC RECORDS' started Feb.2015 by BarryTones (Baz Brennan) to collect various musical projects to one site. I had heard via U-Melt, that .flac files could be streamed via Archive Org. Although this proved impracticable, VLC player and Winamp will Stream 44kx16bit WAV files if the client has 2Mb/sec bandwidth available.

In the 1990s, with better kit - Atari ST, Kawai, Ensoniq, VestaFire, a better product was obtained - although inevitably all I have is the cassette tapes. Some of these were 4track cassettes but remixes are still very limited. Others are just rescued off normal 2track cassettes. I've done my best but the quality is still only moderate with drop-outs and wow/flutter on some. Limiting to -3 or 6dB on some unruly tracks. All Vocs/Sax/MIDIkeys Barrytones. Additional players: 10-Tango10: Pete...

01 BarryTones' Mood 2007: very simplified Ska vs of James Moody's Mood (riff on I'm In The Mood For Love). Baz on Alto, which took 3 or 4 takes as you can hear. 02 Boo Boo 2006: Brit Pop Ska vs of Lord Melody 1956 Boo Boo Man calypso. First heard this in my parents house when I was 6. It obviously made an impression. Took me 50 years for a version 03 My Story 2008: Trying to rattle your headphones in a Dance Hall Stylee. Baz lead guitar. Not really the full story, I'm still living it. 04 Tango...
